Seismic Analysis in Unconventional Shales

Abstract

Chapter 8, “Seismic Analysis in Unconventional Shales,” presents examples of seismic forward modeling and prestack inversion for some of the most leveraging parameters of unconventional shale reservoirs — both the intrinsic parameters (e.g., TOC content) and the extrinsic ones (e.g., horizontal stress gradient). It appears that AI-SI templates modified for organic shales can be adapted for those evaluations, and the organic richness and fracability of organic mudrocks can be mapped on the basis of simultaneous seismic inversion results.
